Located at the westernmost tip of Vancouver, on top of a hill with breathtaking views overlooking the ocean and the North Shore Mountains, West Point Grey is one of Vancouver’s oldest and most luxurious neighbourhoods. Hike along the trails of Pacific Spirit Park and Camosun Bog, or spend the afternoon walking out at low tide on Spanish Banks – the charm of West Point Grey lies in its privacy and proximity to nature.
